Just sad since few days thinking of how they were killed

Just extremely sad since few days thinking of how they were killed.


My blood boils.


Why did they have to kill the innocent kids.


They could have killed the Tsar, but why the kids and his wife ?.


Russians are cruel and cold.


I wish I can go back in time and stop all this.


Very upset. do any one here feel the same way ?

Only to some extent.

I don't think it's appropriate to characterize all Russians for something a few, and desperate extremists ordered 100 years ago.

The children were killed to make sure there would but no pretender in the future to to rally around. It's brutal logic.

And BTW congratulation on your first posts.

I understand about the killing children. But they were killed brutally, and that too in the 19th century. Even during french revolution. They killed the King in a proper way. Not half ass botched.

Also I learnt most of them where not Russians but Austro-Hungarian prisoners.

Thanks for the congratulations :)

Nicholas was also responsible for the deaths of many of his citizens, including children. If you were Jewish you feared for your life. Other ethnicities, too. That doesn't mean I think killing the children was okay. It was what they were used to.

It was a war and revolution situation and terrible things happened. I don't feel any emotional attachement to the Romanovs, mainly because they were terrible rulers. Of course it was sad that the girls and Alexei were killed, and it goes without sayng it was very wrong.. but it had a brutal logic. THe Revolutionaries wanted to eliminate the heirs, and the Tsar and his wife... so that the IF was partly destroyed...and to send a message to the remaining family that they should give up all hopes of restoring the Monarchy...
